When I was boxing my coach would have us do long sprints, he said, "Your hands get faster when your feet do."

I think a lot has to do with genetics but my coach knew what he was talking about so there's some truth to sprints.

Well, i guess there is some truth to that. But I think the best way is to wear 12 or 16oz gloves, once you can get decent strinking speed with heavy gloves your speed will greatly increase when moving back down to the 4oz MMA gloves

There are some martial arts that really focus on speed and reaction time, I forget which though.

Karate focuses on reaction time and counter attacks

Hence loyoto machida's counter attacking abilities

Do knuckle pushups...alot of em too. Also, diamond ones and hindu pushups.

Hit the punching bag (if you got one) and try hitting the bag as many times as you can, but while maintaining good form and techniques. Don't worry about power...if you just lift weights and do a lot of speed training, punching power will come naturally.

I'm in a bit of a hurry but I can list a few things you can do.
First SHADOW BOX.
When you have nothing to do, laying on the couch or at the grocery store start putting together some combos.
If you don't have access to a bag this can really help you! ^^

Also if you not only want to increase punching speed but a few other fundamentals that use your hands try googling a few reaction time games to play by yourself or with some friends, though some may sound stupid they can be very benifical. Irregular training can do amazing things!

Hope I helped a little!

Make shadow box one of the must do activities in your weekly training regime.

I personally have been shadow boxing a while now but doing it with resistance bands in alternate rounds.
